At the theatre, Walter, the love of her life, awaits her, but at home in the house on the Herengracht, winter has set in her father Otto and Aunt Nella argue endlessly, and the Brandt family are selling their furniture in order to eat.

On Theas birthday, also the day that her mother Marin died, the secrets from the past begin to overwhelm the present.<br><br>Nella is desperate to save the family and maintain appearances, to find Thea a husband who will guarantee her future, and when they receive an invitation to Amsterdams most exclusive ball, she is overjoyed perhaps this will set their fortunes straight.
